You are in My Thoughts

Hello all! How was your weekend? We had a busy one including me and straightening my craft room. It was a disaster. I think I've done three releases in a row without cleaning up and I was working on about a corner on my craft table because of the stacks of stuff. I've got it straightened enough to work now but I really need to do some organizing.

Today's card is for the current Inspired By Challenge - Summer on the Porch.

I stamped the sunflower from The Cat's Pajamas Sketchy Flowers set onto watercolor cardstock using Versamark ink, then white heat embossed it. I watercolored the flowers with Daniel Smith watercolors and then messily colored around the flower with scattered straw distress ink. I cut the piece out with a stitched die and then stamped the sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas Simply Said set directly onto the panel. I prepared the card base with a simple black and white striped border

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, PTI dp, PTI and Ranger cs, Simon Says and Ranger distress ink, Daniel Smith Watercolors
Watercolors: Burnt Sienna, Quinacridone Gold, Lemon Yellow

By the way, the June TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas is an Outdoor theme and of course sunflowers fit so this will be featured on the TCP blog as well.
